Rep. Drew Stokesbary sponsors White River student to serve as House page

Fourteen-year-old Hayden Orion Sells recently spent one week in Olympia serving as a page in the state House. He was sponsored by 31st District Rep. Drew Stokesbary, R-Auburn.

“I’m happy to have had the opportunity to sponsor Hayden,” said Rep. Stokesbary. “He is a smart and driven student. I was impressed with his knowledge of the legislative process and his interest in learning the details of how our state capitol functions .I know Hayden will continue to benefit the greater Bonney Lake area.”

Hayden is the son of Greg and Anni Massey and lives in Bonney Lake. In his spare time, he enjoys photography, singing, and participating in DECA projects.

During the week, Hayden attended page school every day, delivered messages and documents to legislators and staff, and fulfilled other tasks critical to the efficient operation of the Legislature.

Each year, students from around the state apply to participate in the House Page Program. To become a page, applicants must have a legislative sponsor, be between the ages of 14 and 16, and obtain written permission from their parents and school. Pages earn $35 per day while serving in the program. For more information about the House Page Program, click here.
